    What goes around comes around

    what else to say. Echo of Afghanistan. The Middle East has always been on fire and apparently there are no prerequisites for its attenuation

    Not a smart person is one who thinks that terrorism can be curbed and directed for his own purposes - he will be at the house sender anyway.

        the main thing is inevitable. 100% guarantee. The main thing is to get to Omerika faster and not show ala September 11, but so that in tin and massively.

    Absolutely overwhelming number of attacks occurs in Muslim countries.
    When will they begin to fight the radicalization of Islam at the state level?

    For those who want to move the world to a global war, Pakistan is a win-win card. There are problems with India, problems with tribes on the border with Afghanistan, internal forces are constantly trying to play out religious contradictions and, of course, the army has nuclear weapons.
